Re: best $100 dropshot shot

for the guys who like the 6'10ml omen,is there a reason you picked it over the 7'1ml version? most of the reviewers on TW use the 7'1 model.I've looked at the fenwick,but that handle just looks fugly to me.I drew a flw tour pro in a bfl event a few years ago & he used a berkley lightning SHOCK rod.I...

Re: ALX Zolo B twitch stick

the Zolo must be a fantastic rod...but it is more in the Crucial, Carrot etc market...how can you guys even mention a ALX or it's blank in the company of Gloomis or Kistler...these rods are far superior... Loomis rods aren't superior to anything, unless you're spending over $400. You're paying for ...

Re: Which Style of Swim Bait Head

I am just using an Abu Garcia Veritas, and no it has not broke yet. Lol I have never lost the kinds of fish some of you guys are talking about. We usually throw our swim jigs in, around, and over the weeds up here in the river. Using a 4/0 Mustard 28 degree hook and a lighter weedguard with a 1/4 o...

dobyns dx704c anyone?

I own & hear a lot about the dx744 but never about this rod.I own a champion 734c that I use for blades/chatterbaits,but I personally think its very close to the 744c(I purchased the 734c first) & its not like I can roll cast either rod.basically wondering if anyone is using this rod for spinnerbaits?

Re: Need Help Selecting a Spinnerbait ONLY Rod

I use a dobyns champion 734,it also started my dobyns addiction.but if I could do it over I'd buy a 7'1mh omen no question.the omens fish in the $200 price range and that's more than enough for a spinnerbait rod

Re: 7'1m black envy vs 742 dobyns extreme baitcast rod

I actually ordered both these rods.the 7'1m envy came first,awesome rod.in 2 days I've caught a 6.3 & a 5.6 using 3/16 shakyhead paired with a patriarch xt & 8lb floro.the dx742c is going to have to be some SPECIAL rod to bump the envy off shakyhead duty

Re: 7'1m black envy vs 742 dobyns extreme baitcast rod

I'm undecided on reels.I have a supertuned curado 50 done by Kevin at pro reel but I have a lews tournament pro that I think throws those weights better.I have a kistler klx 7mh now that I'm positive cost me $ in the last bfl I fished because the rod was to limber! I hope this dx742 is my last & fin...

Re: KVD and square bills

looks like the 705cb glass is the real deal.I'm guessing this rod can be used for traps also.has anyone noticed a big difference in hook up ratio since they've switched to the 705cb glass?

KVD and square bills

I currently don't have a square bill setup.I was watching a bass pros episode & kvd said he uses a 7' medium action rod(his composite rods of course),and a low gear ratio reel.I would think a high speed reel & a mh rod since u throw them in cover,but who am I to argue against kvd on crankbaits.I kno...
